Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm gonna use square root factoring...... I can give you anohter example to factor unless you need to factor for this equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually this equation becomes a little ugly when we try to factor it, so instead we can use the quadratic equation formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well im suppose to factor it...maybe the quadratic equation would work though.....i have to have a smaller and larger value of x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you are supposed to have two differnt answers of x then I would go for quadratic formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All right the factors are [x  (1+root3)/2][x  (1root3)/2]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk about Aron's way but here's how I would do it. a=27 b=2 c=1 x= 27+or squareroot4(27) all divided by 2(27)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just set it equal to 0;the factors [x  (1+root3)/2][x  (1root3)/2]
